Of course everyone who replies to this thread is going to get audited by the IRS.
Last night it was reported on Fox News that what Snowden has revealed so far is not news. The NSA surveillance program was covered in an article in 2005 or 2006 and was, therefore, public knowledge. Then it was apparently not covered further by the press so was forgotten by the public. If true, it sounds like he can't be charged with revealing the "secret" as it was already revealed by the press 7 or 8 years ago.
Since he was elected, Obama expanded the program which is the news in this story.
I don't think our govt wants to bring Snowden here and put him on trial for treason. I imagine he will disappear and China will get blamed for it. Snowden is a dead man.
Too many Vince Flynn novels,
Anyone watch Person of Interest?
I love Vince Flynn too.
Now this guy is in Russia ...maybe he is a traitor ...leaning toward putting him in the same category as the PFC Manning...contrary to what I posted earlier in this thread
I have no idea what to think about him now. Who knows what the truth is. Either way his life is a total wreck. We can't trust the media or the government to tell the truth. Can't judge this thing without the true facts.
With the charges AG Eric Holder chose to file, it will takes years to extradite Snowden. Obama will be out of office, the story will be really old news and not likely covered by the media. I not convinced that Snowden was in a position to have access to really high level information. I do believe it would be an embarrassment to the present administration and that is why lesser offenses were not chosen where extradition would have been possible sooner. The bottom line is they don't want him back now that he is news!
